:D :D :D

So, I'm in a nerdy women's facebook group and one member just posted that she just watched the first episode of Torchwood. AND SHE IS NOT OK with the non-censentual mind-wiping of Gwen and Owen using the pheromone sex cologne. And then the user asked if the show was worth continuing.

AND THEN [livejournal.com profile] jossedintime TAGGED ME.


My stance on Torchwood has always been, "it's a terrible show, don't watch it, also I love it to pieces and will never let it go." And I have drifted a bit away from the fandom (although really I sort of drifted out of fandom for the last four years, and I'm just now crawling my way back, so...) but TORCHWOOD.

ONE PERSON COMMENTED THAT SHE SHOULD SKIP TO SEASON 3. I have declined to respond to that one. I basically gave the OP my ordinary anti-pitch and then told her that if she makes it to episode four, she should call me.

Then I offered to recommend good fic. :D :D

(And then I turned off notifications because I always disagree with everyone about Torchwood. Did I ever mention when I went to the movie theater screening of Season 4 and a woman told me she hated Ianto?)

Basically, I've been afraid to go back to Torchwood fandom because I'm afraid it's all going to be GONE. I know people have been fleeing livejournal and there's a lot of fic that wasn't posted anywhere else. And I'm going to KICK MYSELF if some of my favorite fics are gone. Thank goodness for AO3 getting in before the fandom totally died. I should...get on that.

I tagged you specifically to say that you would tell them not to watch it! I know you.

This is why you and I get along. Some of my fandom friends saw me get into Torchwood in a big way and were all, "I should watch that!" And I did the slo-mo run as I shouted "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!" and dove in front of the TV to save them.

We love our terrible show, and we like other people enough to keep them away from it.
